The Cause of Noise

- Aug 22, 2018-

(1) Improper grounding

In the audio system, the entire system must be grounded well, and the grounding resistance should be less than 4 ohms. Otherwise, the induced charge generated by the equipment in the audio system due to various radiation and electromagnetic induction will not flow to the ground, thus forming a noise voltage superposition to the audio signal.

Grounding noise is caused when there is a ground potential difference between the wires of different devices due to the difference in grounding resistance, or when there is a loop in the ground inside the system. When two different audio systems are connected to each other, it is also possible that noise is generated by directly connecting the ground lines of the two systems.

(2) Noise generated by electromagnetic radiation interference

Spurious electromagnetic radiation interference in the environment, such as high-frequency electromagnetic wave radiation interference of communication equipment such as mobile phones and walkie-talkies, electric pulse interference such as elevators and air conditioners, and radiation of thyristor rectifier control equipment for studio lighting control, are directly mixed and transmitted through the transmission line. Noise is formed in the signal. A studio is because there are a lot of thyristor dimming equipment, so there is always noise in the sound reinforcement.

(3) Circuit noise inside the equipment

When a device is working alone, the electrical noise generated by the internal electronic components can reach the required standard, but after cascading multiple devices, the noise will increase cumulatively, and serious noise will be formed in the system.

(4) Noise generated by power supply interference

The urban power grid has formed a serious interference source due to the joint access of various lighting equipment, power equipment and control equipment. If the lighting control equipment, air conditioner, motor, etc. connected in the same power grid will generate spikes, surge currents, and ripple voltages of different frequencies on the power line. Break into the power supply of the device through the power cord. There will always be some interference noise voltage that cannot be effectively filtered out by the power supply circuit of the audio device, which will inevitably generate noise inside the device.
